Super Bowl Babies: Chief’s Nick Allegretti Welcomes Twins Ahead of Win

"It's the best day of my life no matter what…I became a dad, father of two daughters. Unbelievable. And now, I've got a ring for both of them," the offensive lineman said.

Kansas City Chief’s offensive lineman Nick Allegretti has plenty to celebrate.

This past Sunday, the NFL star welcomed twin girls just hours before he would go on to win his second Super Bowl championship ring. Although he was in Arizona for the game at the time of his baby girls’ birth, the first-time dad was by his wife Christina’s side virtually via Facetime as she gave birth in Chicago.

“It’s the best day of my life no matter what I’m—3:30, 4am—I became a dad, father of two daughters. Unbelievable. And now, I’ve got a ring for both of them. Incredible, cannot believe it,” Allegretti told Chief’s Digest, per Good Morning America.

The couple first announced they were expecting over Thanksgiving with a photo featuring two sets of baby shoes with the caption, “So much to be thankful for this year.”

The Allegretti’s babies weren’t the only ones to make their grand entrance on Super Bowl Sunday. Allegretti’s teammate and Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman tweeted that his girlfriend, Chariah Gordeon, had gone into labor on Super Bowl Sunday as well. By the morning of February 13, Hardman had welcomed his first son.

While the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t welcome any Super Bowl babies on their side, they were certainly prepared for the big day. Eagles center Jason Kelce and his wife Kylie invited their obstetricians to the game after learning that Kylie would be 38 weeks along at the game.

Frida even agreed to sponsor Kelce and has offered to provide free products for mom and baby to all women who delivered on Superbowl Sunday. Simply email with proof of birth on Sunday, February 12, 2023, and a shipping address and Frida will send over Frida Mom and Frida Baby essentials at no cost.

This isn’t the first time babies have made a Super Bowl appearance. Just last year, Samaria Jefferson, the wife of Los Angeles Rams receiver Van Jefferson, was rushed from the Super Bowl during the game to deliver their son at the hospital. Jefferson rushed to be by her side after the Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals.

Congratulations to all the super moms out there!
